Rentokil, the go-to service for vermin control, are expanding their repertoire from killing pests to serving them up on a plate.

For one day only, they're holding an exclusive pop-up 'Pestaurant', with delicacies including sweet chilli pigeon burgers, Wasabi Weaver ants, BBQ grasshoppers and chocolate flavoured dipped bugs.

After feasting in style from a smorgasbord of edible insects, diners can pick up advice on the best way to deal with pests that are still alive from Rentokil representives.

A number of experts will be on-hand to answer any pest-related questions and pass out tips on dealing with common UK pests, including ants, bedbugs, flies, mice, pigeons, rats and wasps.

This happy event celebrates Rentokil's pest control heritage but - in news that will disappoint insect-eating aficionados - is limited to London only.

If you're hungry for a taste of bug-based amuse-bouche and live in the capital, head to One New Change (nearest tubes: St Paul’s and Mansion House) from 10:30am next Thursday 15 August.

Edible insect cuisine is having a moment right now, with Eat Ento, a bug-derived fine dining experience, launching in London next week (15 - 17 August).

This pioneering project from Grey Goose Iconoclasts of Taste aims to "introduce insects to the Western diet as a delicious sustainable source of protein."

The four-course pop-up menu includes honey caterpillar and grasshopper medallions - which have a creamy pistachio nut flavour - served alongside wild mushroom ravioli and black truffle.

Book tickets at greygoosetaste.com.

Bon appétit!
